Visiting Southern Pacific steam locomotive # 4449 on display next to Historic Tower B-12. Franklin Park Illinois. Saturday, August 1st 2009., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo on a rainy afternoon on Saturday, August 1st, 2009.
A special visitor to the greater Chicagoland area, was preserved 1941 vintage Lima Locomotive Works 4-8-4 # 4449, from the former Southern Pacific Railroad.
Painted in the original S.P Daylight color scheme it wore several decades ago, when it hauled S.P Named passenger trains like The Coast Daylight in the state of California.
The Daylight color scheme, added a bright and colorful spot to an overcast and otherwise dreary day in the greater Chicagoland area.
